I am thrilled to know that the Vegetable Bin is back. Actually they were back for about two years, but I didn't realize it. They have a wonderful selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as a variety of other grocery items. And the pricing is great. I hope that the locals will support them so that they can stay open into perpetuity.
The Vegetable Bin has forced me to stop buying over priced, over-ripe, and tasteless fruits & veggies that are generally found at most grocery stores.
The vegetable bin has a large selection of locally grown fruits & veggies and also has a meat and dairy section too. However, be careful because I once bought a peice of meat that was listed as Beef, only to get it home and find out it was pork (I didn't realize how pink it was at the store).
They have a large selection of dried herbs and fruits and they're much cheaper here than at the store. THey have dried apricots that cost 1/10th of dried apricots at regular grocery stores.
Yet another Charleston landmark that is 100% locally owned. Support local businesses and lower prices by buying from the real deal. You're not only supporting the local "Vegetable Bin", but the myraid of farmers and small-time growers that provide their fruits & veggies.
The Vegetable Bin is located at the foot of Society Street, where it intersects with East Bay Street, right next to Harris Teeter.
It is a very unassuming tin building and you'd think that the grocery store must be the place where you can get the best deals on veggies. HARDLY SO!
The Vegetable Bin has a very large selection of fresh fruits & vegetables at very very low prices. They also have a fresh meat and dairy selection.
To me, the best part about the Vegetable Bin is their selection of herbs and spices and other sundries. The spices here are so much cheaper and fresher than what you'd get on the shelf at the grocery store. They make their own sundried tomatoes and they're SO cheap. At the store, a little tiny jar costs $5. Here, you could get 6 jars worth for $5.
Very much reccomended. Never bought fruits/vegs at the grocery store since I started shopping here!
